Museo Lázaro Galdiano

Museo Lázaro Galdiano
Madrid, Spain

The manuscript contains two works of Flavius Josephus - L'Antiquité Judaïque, in twenty books, and Bataille Judaïque in seven- written in Aramaic, that were propagated in Latin and vernacular languages in the Middle Ages and experienced a great difussion, despite the emergence of the printing. The manuscript must be one of those made for the alderman of Rouen, after 1460. The paintings which are located at the beginning of each book depict battles, looting, destruction and biblical episodes, with particular emphasis on the first one, the scene of Creation.
